About Product

Our customers know what they want. Our job is to listen, learn and find a way to give it to them. We have to be bold. Take chances, try new things. But this is Mollie and it’s what we’re best at.

Zero-touch onboarding
We’re improving the way we bring merchants on board. Through a close partnership with our Operations team, we’re making the process easy, safe and compliant.
Financial Services that go further
We just launched Mollie connect and Multicurrency settlements. But why stop there? We’re looking to expand our offering to give our merchants more flexible ways to manage their earnings.
Expanding insights
By providing insights on things like payment methods and current sales, we help our merchants optimise their businesses. And now we want to take our dashboards to another level and offer them the best conversion.
